Paul Pogba’s lawyer Rafaela Pimenta recently held an intense meeting with the Juventus midfielder about a move to Saudi Arabia.
Giovanni Albanese has reported that yesterday morning, Pimenta was at the Continassa and while she didn’t speak to Juventus, she did have a meeting with Pogba. Their relationship goes beyond a professional support and they have a good personal relationship as well and the main topic of discussion was the recent approach from Saudi Arabia.
While Pogba is currently focused on Juventus and he is training hard to be fit for the Bianconeri, Pimenta seems to have other plans altogether. He is not giving in to the approaches from the Middle East. But if he does leave Juventus, the Bianconeri would not see the exit as an abandonment and that is also because they already have a replacement in mind – Sergej Milinković-Savić.
While the Serbian has also attracted interest from Al-Hilal, him replacing Pogba at Juve would not hurt the Bianconeri’s finances too much. In Juve’s move for Milinković-Savić, Luca Pellegrini could be offered. While there has been talk of Nicolo Rovella being part of the move, Juve are hesitant on letting him go after a good season at Monza. It is a situation which could evolve, depending on the decision that Pogba makes.
